  1. The Mary Sue Interview: The Winner’s Crime‘s Marie Rutkoski On YA Heroines, Romance, and That Next Book

    If you like YA lit, you should check this one out.

    Marie Rutkoski's The Winner's Curse made a huge splash in YA lit when it arrived, and people loved it for Kestral, its strong female lead, and its intricate portrayal of a world embroiled in imperialist politics. The sequel, The Winner's Crime, just released on Tuesday, and I thought it was a great follow-up - and, in fact, a great improvement - on the first. I got the chance to speak with Rutkoski about the new book and her plans for Kestral's future.

  2. Swedish TV Host Starts Fire Live on Air While Frying Cheese Doodles for Some Reason

    The Muppets would be so proud.

    Today is Cheese Doodle Day, evidently, so this morning Nyhetsmorgon host Jenny Strömstedt asked her viewers for tips on how to best "prepare" them (because I guess just eating them out of the bag with your greasy cheese-stained fingers isn't proper in Sweden). Then her co-host suggested she try to flip them in the air while frying them over a stove, and everything worked out for the best. Wait. Is the best supposed to be on fire?

  3. What Awesome American Woman Would You Like to See on the $20 Bill?

    The face of progress.

    The year 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, and the Women on 20s campaign wants to commemorate this by replacing Andrew Jackson with a woman onto the $20 bill. W20 has a list of candidates for the public to vote on.

  6. Sony’s Amy Pascal Can’t Move Into Her New Office Because It Smells Like Seth Rogen’s Pot

    Not making this up.

    Jesus, Amy Pascal must hate Seth Rogen so much right now. First he makes a stupid North Korea-baiting movie that results in all of her work emails and even her salary getting released to the public, and now she can't get the stench of marijuana out of her new digs because of him. How's a lady supposed to catch a break?

  8. Things We Saw Today: Girls Can Be Firefighters Too In Empowering New Clothing Line

    Because girls like dinosaurs, space, and other awesome things.

    The bad news: This clothing line is still a not-yet-funded Kickstarter. The good news: You can go fund it, because girls should be able to get clothing that reflects their interests, no matter what those interests may be.

  9. The Mary Sue Interview: Feminist, Honorary Jedi, and Human Cannonball Gemma the Jet

    It's a bird! It's a plane! It's an awesome role model!

    Gemma Kirby's job requires spending a lot of time in the air, which makes sense considering her original career-goal: "When I was really little, I wanted to be Luke Skywalker. My friends would call me Luke because when I was 3 or 4 years old I found Star Wars and I demanded they call me Luke and I would not answer to anything else."
